In an interview with Rocky Mountain News, director Eric Brevig suggested that the second 'Journey' film may deal with the lost city of Atlantis.
The New Line Cinema's adventure fantasy film "Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D" has just made its way to the theaters on Friday, July 11. And before it even gets the chance to display its ability to compete with potentially summer blockbuster "Hellboy II: The Golden Army", it has been hit with sequel talks.
While promoting this family adventure movie in Denver, director Mike Brevig gave out hint of the possible follow-up film. Asked about the chance of "Journey" having a sequel on a Q&A session with Mike Pearson of Rocky Mountain News, the visual effects supervisor for "The Island" revealed, "At the end of the movie, they find a book about Atlantis. That might be something. If people embrace the movie and want to see these characters on another adventure, we might come up with something."
Concerning "Journey", it is 3-D movie based on Jules Verne's classic novel of the same name. It stars Brendan Fraser as the main character, a volcanologist by the name of Trevor. Together with his nephew played by Josh Hutcherson and guided by Hannah, depicted by Anita Briem, Trevor finds a world beneath the Earth surface. There, they encounter creatures like they have never seen before and fall into an adventure they have never imagine.
